William (Bill) Lynch
Building and Construction Teacher

One of my favorite things about being a carpenter has always been the satisfaction I felt at the end of a work day, when I could literally look back at what I had built that day. As a teacher, there has been no bigger thrill than to see a student's work well done, and the student taking pride in that job.
